What is you view about abortion?

What is your view about abortion? Do you agree with the concept? Why or why not? State your reason and explanation. Does it really disobey the commandments of God?

My view is that is a very heinous act. I will never understand nor will I ever think it is in the best interest of anyone to abort, under any circumstance. There are other options, some might be not very "likeable" by the person that is pregnant, but there are other choices that can be made.

Just curious & not trying to start an argument. I've seen your responses before I've seen that although you are firm in your beliefs you do not seem intolerant that others disagree- so here's my curiousity question. What would you do or suggest to a loved one in the case of tubular pregnancy? The embryo is going to pass regardless, but would you wait (and risk your health) until you could confirm that the embryo had ceased to develop? Or would that be an exception to under any circumstance?

You're right, I am not intolerant of others and their beliefs and choices. Actually, this just came up with one of our play group mothers. We prayed with her, we offered her support and we left it between God and her. I must clarify when I state "under any circumstance". I suppose what I am stressing is an "unwanted" pregnancy. One that is just an "inconvience" or "financial burden". In my opinion, a tubal pregnancy, from what I understand of it, there is a slim to none chance that the embryo will not clear the tube. I honestly can't say what I would do in that situation nor could I tell anyone else what to do in that situation. I don't know how I could live with myself not knowing for sure if that embryo would have gone on to develop and I stopped it. But then again, I don't know how I could live with myself if I hadn't stopped it and it ended up killing me therefor leaving my living child motherless. Does that make more sense? I guess what I am getting at is the heinous act of aborting when someone just wants to exercise their rights...

If it's God's will to take someone's life, nothing we can do can stop it. It is up to Him not us. I can't understand why people would harm others just because they have "strong beliefs". That is definatly not the work of God. He never forces Himself upon anyone. And He for sure never harms anyone because they believe differently. Yes there is consquences for sin and actions but He will deal with it. It's not up to us to carry out judgement.

My general point of view about abortion is I am against in abortion. It is a nonsense and wrong doing act of killing an innocent life. Abortion is an absolutely wrong and it is a crime of murder. And absolutely I am not favor for this. And I think the fetus have life and like us she/he have a right to see this wonderful world.

I believe prevention is always better than cure. I am not comfortable with abortion but it is not my decision to make for someone else, only for myself and I would not have an abortion. I suppose realistically it is against the "thou shalt not kill" commandment but then the argument about when life begins comes into that and it all depends on what you personally believe. Abortion is a terribly difficult question and I think there are very few people among us wise enough to give a definitive answer to that question.

I'm absolutely pro-choice. The commitments required to bring a pregnancy to term are too huge to force any woman to do so against her will. Unplanned pregnancies happen for many reasons, and really isn't anyone's business- I don't see that saying it's right under XYZ circumstances but wrong under QRS circumstances is needed at all. If a woman/couple chooses not to be pregnant at this time, terminating should be a legal & safe option for them. I'm not Jewish or Christian so the 10 Commandments aren't part of my religious beliefs, but since I am familiar with them- I do not think terminations violate the "Thou Shall Not Kill" commandment. A person must be alive to be killed. An early pregnancy is not a life/baby/person yet. Until there is some reasonable viability imo it's not a life.

well, it really depends upon the situation. If the pregnancy happens just because the persons involved were careless then in that case it is really bad cause pregnacny is not something that can be easily taken care of. And there are also situation such as complication in pregnancies then at that time doctor suggest mother to abort the baby to protect the mother then at that case it is considered as good and legal. Unwanted Pregnancy can happen with various of reason.
